My name, Daphne.

Daphne is the name I was given at birth
and it will stay with me for the rest of my days
No matter how annoying it is
when people call me "Daffy Duck"
or "The girl from Scooby-Doo"
I still know that Daphne is a vintage name.

I used to want the name, cheyenne
because of how pretty it sounded.
I used to dream of being a cheerleader
and being loved by all.
Instead of being called a freak
throughout the halls of my school.

I never entend on likeing myself for who I am
because year by year
I just get worse and worse
The ugly is showing more than ever before
and the name, Daphne, doesn't help.

Maybe in the far future
I will learn to like Daphne
because she always knows
how to color in the lines
and fix things
